IKEDA, RYOJI: 1000 fragments
Contained noise of various sorts, arranged in extreme and radically opposing segments; very clean, very orderly, listenable in a perverse way, with no narrative content, but an engaging aesthetic wholeness, this is a good introduction to Ikeda's minimal but strict aesthetic. In three sections, one mobile and balanced, one extended and hollow, the third ghost-like. Austere and not for everyone, this is, however, also a welcome reissue by Raster-Notion of his first release (1995), though the minimal packaging won't tell you that, or anything else, so there is historical value here too, if 12 years constitutes history.
